I get that message, too, but only occasionally.

It happens after I first login to my workstation and type cfs listvol .
in my home directory. cfs listvol ~ and cd; cfs listvol . usually don't
show that error message.

I assume there is some mismatch between the current directory as the shell
knows it (prior to clogging in) and venus knows (after logging in).

Anyways, it doesn't seem to cause any trouble...
